yes, good idea. we already prepared inlet/outlet/arguments/messages but 
this is really open.

that has to be added for each object individually. sometimes objects 
belong to one category, then you can go to the category and all objects 
will be listed there. but of course that is something different than 
related objects or see also.
another nice feature is "what links here" on the left navigation bar.

yes, we prepared that too, I just turned it on. there is a status field 
in the infobox where you can add the status ("ok" or "deprecated") just 
add information like "replaced by...."
